Lean, Green, and Protein - Day 16

One of the focuses of my current diet is on eating...

  • LEAN
  • GREEN &

KEEP IT LEAN -  I have been focusing on chicken and fish although there is nothing wrong with lean pork loin, or steak cuts like sirloin that are lean.  I have stayed away from ground beef, and other high fat meats.  This has nothing to do with being a low carb diet. I had pasta today.  Eating lean gives me more nutrition with less calories.  So that is a big win and helps me lose weight.

GO FOR THE GREEN - Green is synonymous with vegetables.   Green vegetables are great for a diet because they are normally low in calories and loaded with nutrients, low in carbs, and contain natural fiber. Choices like spinach, kale, collards, lettuces, (especially the darker green varieties) green beans, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, and zucchini, are a few of my favorites. Actually it is not just the color that matters, but the make up of the vegetables, avoiding starchy vegetables like potatoes, especially french fries makes dieting easier.  I eat a lot of yellow squash, and enjoy California blend vegetables.

POWERFUL PROTEIN - Our body runs on protein.  Lean protein fuels our body longer than high carb foods.  Protein help keep down sugar spikes especially when combined with vegetables high in fiber.  Spreading your servings of protein through the day helps your body heat up your metabolism because it knows it is being feed. Body by Vi is packed with proteins and other essential vitamins.
